Attacking Strategies[edit source]

  • Veteran Republic Rifleman has low health; making them vulnerable to defenses. Use Heavy Infantry as meat shields to protect the Veteran Republic Rifleman.
  • Veteran Republic Rifleman is cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use Veteran Republic Rifleman to protect heavy infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.
  • Since Veteran Republic Rifleman can deal more damage to foot troops, bringing some along with Heavy Infantry and/or Heavy Cavalry will help deal with pesky defending foot troops!
  • Make sure to keep the Veteran Republic Rifleman behind your 'meat shields' or away from danger.

Defensive Strategies[edit source]

  • Veteran Republic Rifleman can be used as good Alliance Troops. One example is that they can shoot over walls to attack troops of the attackers forcing the troops to destroy the wall to kill them. Another thing is that they're good against other Heavy Infantry.
